California Sues Activision Blizzard

I can barely bring myself to format anything here regarding this case. The only reason I’m posting anything is for my own bookkeeping. I have a World of Warcraft category on my little blog here and if nothing else gets posted regarding WoW, I’d just like something here that outlines why. Here’s a video from Bellular News regarding the case against Blizzard and its shitty workplace environment.

Here’s another video discussing the shitty human beings associated with aspects of the case. People I actually met and shook hands with at BlizzCon.

I fucking loathe this “yeah bro” mentality. Fucking Blizzard.

I hope Final Fantasy 14 is good.

I’ll have my tequila ready!

WoW Leveling Pre-Shadowlands

Well here we are. The World (of Warcraft) has changed once again. Shadowlands is coming… eventually. But in the meantime, we as players can take this time to adapt to Patch 9.0. This means changes to class skills, talents, and dealing with the level squish from 120 to 50.

With the squish comes certain benefits. This might not be a bad time to level up some alts. By all accounts, leveling now is much quicker than before. Bellular (@BellularGaming on Twitter) over at Bellular Gaming cranked out this video to explain just what the Hell happened, how the Hell to level, and where the Hell to do it.

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to leveling a few more alts.

Hell no.

Fastest leveling 1 to 120 in World of Warcraft

With the 100% XP bonus being extended, now is the time to level up those alts. And, like an idiot, I decided that maybe I’d like to unlock the Mag’har Orc Heritage Armor, so I started a DK and decided to give it a go. Well thanks to the video below by FezzikGG, I went from 58-62 in about 45 minutes using a route I’d never taken before. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stomach leveling yet ANOTHER character, but until I hit that wall and come to my senses I’ll see how far FezzikGG can take me.

Enter the Shadowlands

Warcraft

I have seen beyond the bounds of infinity and drawn down daemons from the stars. . . . I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and madness. . . .

This year at Blizzcon 2019, Blizzard announced the next expansion for World of Warcraft – Shadowlands, coming sometime in 2020. Given the number of features they’re still working on, estimating a release date of December 2020 is not out of the realm of possibilities.

After watching the cinematic, I bought the preorder. Yes, it was that good.
